Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    The hell with them! I just want them to go full war inside turkey. Surprised the West is not reacting to turkey's rapprochement with Russia or destabilize turkey itself.
    That would be a good idea. Screw turkey up so it disintegrates. If Iraqi Kurds get independence there's a good chance they will grab Syrian territories too. If 12-15mln country next to turkey, then they will take the fight inside.
    But turks have good noses

      Անկախ մեր մեծամտութիւնից, Քրդերը մեր ճակատագրից մեզնից լաւ են դասեր քաղել....., արնւազն մինջ հիմա:

      Իրանք ընտրեցին եււրեներին ու իրանց պոլշեւիկ հալով, բուճ կապիտալիստ իմպերիալիստներին...

      Պիտի ասել, որ մինջ հիմա, միայն ճիշտով ճիշտ դուրս եկան:

      Իրանց տարածքը էնքան մեծացաւ, իրանց ամենից գիժն անգամ չեր երազեր մի տաս տարի առաջ..., արդեն իրանձով են անում Տեր Զորը..., չհաշւած Քիրքուքն ամբողջութեամբ, ու Մոսուլի կեսը, որն արդեն հասձրել են մարսել։

      Ռսների հույսին որ մնաին, հաստատ արդեն ուրիշ ցենար կլիներ....

      • Concerning the small pocket of Efrin, it is supposed, that the US and Russia divided their respective zones by the Yeprad river.
        The only exception is the bridgehead west of the Yeprad around Manbij, that effectively the US protected against turkish open threats since a year now.. irrespective of their apparent promises to Erdogan, about its imminent evacuation east of the river.
        Who could have guessed, that the pride of Syria, the biggest dam Assad on Yeprad, well beyond normal kurdish claims, will turn to be a national kurdish asset by now?

        So Afrin is an exception, and the only place where russians have a say in kurdish matters....
        And no surprise, if they trade it today...
        If not today, they will do it one day or an other..., well it won't be a major game changer any way.
        The Kurds will reach the Medterranean shores anyway in Kilikia, since they have replaced us there...

        • "Turkey's Erdogan, Iraq's Abadi to discuss Iraqi Kurdish referendum

          Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will meet Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi this week to discuss their concerns about an independence referendum in Iraq’s Kurdish region.

          Turkey, the United States and other Western powers have advised authorities in the semi-autonomous region to cancel the vote, worrying that tensions it would generate might act as an unwelcome distraction from the war on Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

          With the largest Kurdish population in the region, Turkey also fears that a “Yes” vote would fuel separatism in its southeast, where militants of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) have waged an insurgency for three decades.

          Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani said on Friday the referendum would go ahead as planned on Sept. 25."

          • Map update: Syrian Army crosses Euphrates River into ISIS-held eastern Deir Ezzor

            By Chris Tomson

            18/09/2017

            DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:35 P.M.) – For the first time in over five years, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has landed on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River in Deir Ezzor after completely decimating ISIS forces over the past few months.

            Exploring a weak point in the Islamic State’s defensive line on Monday, the SAA used modified Russian-manufactured vehicles to establish a beachhead southeast of the city.

            Subsequently, elite SAA assault units reportedly overran the villages of Marrat and Mazlum where engineers are working on entrenching positions to deter a looming ISIS counter-offensive from driving government forces back into the sea.

            Meanwhile, fierce clashes continue on the contested Sakr Island while jihadist insurgents suddenly face being trapped inside ISIS-held suburbs of the provincial capital.

            Long term, Suheil Al-Hassan and Issam Zahreddine – the two leading SAA commanders in Deir Ezzor – hope to strike further eastwards and retake the border with Iraq.

            This military endavour would also cutoff the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) from land-grabbing further ISIS territory in the governorate.

            NB: note the Armenian cemetery on the map....

                  • Couple days ago the US opens its first American Military base in Shekelistan. Today the Shekelists claim they shot down an Iranian supplied drone to Hezbollah.
                    Since they lost Syria to Russia and Iran, fortification is starting for a new major war in the region. It should not effect us, but will be curious to see how turkey will shift and react.
                    Most likely they will have a major incursion in all of the northern territories of Syria and Iraq to deal with the kurds (if they can). I think shut is going to hit the fan in souther regions of our borders.
                    Would the azeris use the soon to come conflicts with all major powers busy and try their luck too?

                      What do you think?
                      Is it possible to have wars all around us and sleep peacefully in a donkey ear?
                      If Russia gets involved, we are involved. The mutual defence pact.
                      what we expect from Russia we have to be ready to do ourselfs.
                      Azeris will try to catch a moment with Turks next to them.
                      It comes necessary to have a nuke of our own.
